Examined Life Counseling is for…
Dealing with anxiety, depression, self-image, relationship to food, pornography, or technology, challenges related to ADHD, struggles in relationships, stress about future goals and life decisions, or wanting to learn more about who you are and be intentional about who you are becoming? Examined Life Counseling can help you navigate the stresses and challenges you face in school, friendships, and family as you mature into adults. The last year and a half have put a significant strain on many relationships, from online school, to disconnection with friends and perhaps feeling confined in a house with your family. It has been easy for some to pull back and remove yourself from relationships. Examined Life is here to help you understand yourself better so that you can reconnect with those you’ve lost touch with, repair damaged relationships with friends and family, and help live into a bright future.
Experiencing anxiety, depression, addictions or unhelpful coping behaviors, trauma, relationship struggles, or just feeling overwhelmed and underprepared for what life has thrown at you? Human flourishing is what we all strive for, and yet it is difficult to achieve. Examined Life Counseling is here to help you name your challenges, understand yourself, your strategies for addressing problems and determining why they are successful or not. We are willing to sit in the uncomfortable emotions, the unease of not knowing what’s next and pain of past relationships and trauma. The good news is you don’t have to navigate your struggles on your own. Examined Life Counseling can help by having a dedicated therapist whose full attention is on you, the client, learn more about you, your story, and bring restoration through a personalized therapy plan using different therapies from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to Existential Therapy and more to meet your needs. We also believe in the whole self, body, mind, and soul, to that end, other interventions such as fitness routines and sleep protocols to spiritual practices can be involved in the healing process for the individual. We believe any person can flourish when our physical, emotional, and spiritual habits are aligned with our goals.
Intimate relationships have a significant impact on us, as individuals, whether you are considering marriage or you have been married for years. Though these relationships can provide immense enjoyment, they can also experience conflict. Couples counseling is like car maintenance; even if no big red lights are flashing, it is helpful to come in for a tune-up every so often to keep everything running smoothly. If there are red lights flashing, it is vital to seek professional help. It is important to be able to identify emotions during conversation with a partner and recognize how one is feeling in order to better communicate. With the help of a counselor, you can learn more about your communication and relationship styles as well as helpful skills to work to build up one another.
Spiritual Integration: For those looking for intentional spiritual integration into emotional healing, Examined Life Counseling takes religious traditions into consideration and the meaning found in our spiritual journey as an essential component to a healthy person. In fact, the word psychology is rooted in the Greek word “psyche” or soul. Psychology and counselors are to be focused on the wellness of the “soul” as much as with the “mind” or “heart”. This integration is for those who have specific religious backgrounds or faiths as well as those who do not currently have a spiritual tradition but desire to be connected to something greater than themselves.
